Another Beastly Book

    Hand bound artist's book. The covers and pages are all sink art paper that I colored. The book is bound by sewing over leather tapes with the link stitch. I hated the bright green leather that I ended up using, as I was not properly organized. As a result I used sandpaper to age the leather and remove the bright green. Originally, I was going to feed the tapes back between the covers through slots. This looked ugly to me, so I left the tapes loose and sewed on some beads. The title is written in calligraphy on brown paper.Hand bound artist’s book. The covers and pages are all sink art paper that I colored.
